When I was growing up, my mom was always very good about making sure that the table was set correctly: fork on the left, plate in the middle, and knife and spoon on the right with a cup above it. When we lived at home, Denise, Ben, and I took turns setting the table, so we all became very familiar with the layout. Now that Henry is getting older and is starting to be able to handle some simple chores of his own, I want to make sure that I teach him how to set the table correctly too! Because of this, I made him some place setting placemats. I appliqued the plate, cup, and utensils on the placemats using some of my favorite fabrics that I had on hand. Then, I used some scrappy binding to bind them, and overall I think they turned out pretty well. I've been working on these since the beginning of the year, and finally finished them a few weeks ago. Well worth the four-month process I think. I love the way they turned out!
